Caption Track Style Not Exported with Create Captions Preset

I can argue that this is a feature request, a bug, or just an observation that users will be confused when Create Caption Presets are imported.

 

Caption Track Styles are now correctly SAVED with a Create Captions Preset via the 3 dot menu in the Create Captions dialogue. Saved Presets are automatically added to an "Auto Captioning Presets" Folder in the Project Panel.

 

But when EXPORTED (via the 3 dot menu in the Create Captions dialogue - "Export Current Settings as Preset"), the .prcaptionspreset file contains no Caption Track Style information and is therefore not imported with a preset.

 

The Workaround is to copy/paste such a preset between projects, but this requires both projects to be open.

 

If the Caption Track Style in the Preset is not in the Project, it is ignored, and None is shown. I have not tested whether "none" (a PR default which has an unknown source) is actually used.

 

It is also inconvenient that you cannot export multiple presets at once.

 

Ideally, I suspect, it would be better to make the preset part of the .prtextstyle system.

 

The .prcaptionspreset file that is exported contains the settings active at the time of the save, not the settings in the Preset that is in use. Once saved, the settings shown revert to the Saved preset, not the Exported preset.

I tested this in Release 24.1.0; I have not tested in the Beta.

 

When this bug report was submitted, the exported .prcaptionspreset did not have a variable for style. It now has a style ID in the export.

 

For example, …. "StyleID":"8f6d19f5-ed4d-8cfa-c750-1cfc000001c3"}

 

If the required style is imported to the new project BEFORE importing (or at least using) the Preset, it works. If not, PR crashes (with error report). That error should be trapped, perhaps with a prompt to the user to import the needed style.

I tested in Beta 24.2.0.78.

 

The style is exported as noted. However, even if the style is imported to the project before the preset is imported, the style does not appear in the preset. When the style is selected in the preset and (a new) preset is exported, the style ID in the export does not match.

 

There is no crash issue.

 

There are other differences in the Beta version. I am still testing.

Updated to Beta 24.3.0.5. Created and new project and 1) used caption track styles from the local folder and 2) removed from the local folder before creating a new project, and imported styles. And I did this with PR remaining open between projects and closing/restarting PR before creating a new project. After importing a Preset with a style saved, the correct style does not show in the Style section, but it IS used. Eventually, the correct style shows.

 

Very nice. The bug described above is fixed. And the local folder avoids having to import styles to new projects. It is true, that to use the style in a new project, it must be selected and "linked" in the new project. And I see no way to get to these text styles without first creating some kind of text. They are not available in the EGP Browse section, but in the browser next to the text style dropdown.

 

I think the ultimate goal is to make them available in the Library, so as an intermediate step, this is good.
